tagged ~ 8 random things

a different side to me, taken by Boho Boy

I've been tagged by the scrumptious Schmoopy, cuz she knew I needed some fun. So here are 8 random goofy things that you may not know about me.
  • We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and they should read your blog.

1.) Family Nicknames: My extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins) all call me Neecie. My parents call me Boochie. My sister Pamela calls me Boochiana and my sister Darlene calls me Sugar Buns.

2.) This face you see above is a slight version of what I called the "Dino" face to make my sisters laugh when we were young. The true Dino face has more puffed cheeks and I pulled my ears out. I am talking about Dino from the Flintstones, of course.

3.) I went to Bible college and the boys sent a secret survey around about the girls and I found out that my dorm mate won "best hair" and I won "best ass". Nice. So much more evolved than high school. Yes...this is what really goes on in Bible college. Oh, I mean "Bridal" college because everyone goes there to find a husband or wife. My dorm mate and I thankfully escaped the bubble.

4.) I can squirt a tiny stream of water for miles out of the small gap between my two front teeth.

5.) I was in a traveling Mime drama group in college. The first fight my husband and I got into was when I told him this and he started laughing and pretending to be a Mime in a box. I was so appalled that he was so ignorant. I mean, Mime's do SO much more than the box thing these days. Please.

6.) I like Sci-Fi shows. I mean really like them. Battlestar Galactica, 4400, Farscape...total turn-ons for me. This is when my true inner-geek surfaces. The girl back in 5th grade that wore the same purple Izod shirt almost every day and didn't like to wash her hair. I was finally rescued by a beautiful rich girl that taught me how to dress (yes, Laurie...that's you) but that geek still lives and my husband used his magic to bring her back to life.

7.) I don't like to put syrup all over my ice cream. I like it on the side so I can slowly pour it on with each bite. Otherwise, if you put it all on...it melts the whole scoop of ice cream. Hellooo Virgo.

8.) I don't freak out using other people's toothbrushes or make-up. I guess that makes me not a germ freak, which surprises me because most people in my family are.

Bonus thing: I won best personality in high school. Way better than best ass.

The 8 people I am tagging are Andrea, Darlene, Christine, Jen G, Kirsten, Jen, Meg, Brittany.

Sci-fi, yup. The real reason I got Netflix was to watch every season of Stargate, 4400 is a must, and I was so excited to see a Klingon at the Star Trek Experience in Vegas...

P.S. - you should have gotten the great hair award, too.

Oh you darling sweet angel face.

I so love this picture of you.

I am not a real germ freak either-my husband is grossed out when I ask for a piece of his gum (while he is chewing it).

The story about Mime made me giggle but only because I was imagining C's face when he did it.

Loving you'toe to toe

i giggled my way through this whole post ;-)...it was so much fun seeing this side of you.
when i got to the list of people you'd tagged and saw my name...i actually clicked on it to see where it would lead...when my blog came up...i cried.
seriously, i was just so flattered...i cried great big tears of gratitude.
so thank you...it's been a sad day and this little tag is exactly what i need to distract me for a little while,

I was thinking of you today! I was thinking of my large derriere (spelling??) and how you told me in a comment once to learn to love it and work it. Made me smile. Happy best ass!!

i'm not a germ freak either...and i see thea isn't either...i guess when we get together again we don't have anything to worry about...if one of us forgets something we can just borrow from each other...

oh, and my non-germ-freakness has come in very handy as a parent...
